NT4 CAN login but requires matching username

Hi there,

Thanks for the ideas last time, ofcourse the share mapping by
hand didn't work, that also said bad password, just like when
connecting from Find Computer. I have tested all the ideas on
this subject which were on the list and now I have a half-
functioning NT4 - Samba 1.x connection, with PlainTextPasswords.

The problem is that I must log in to NT on the same username 
like the unix account on the Samba server! In this case the
connection works ok, 100% functionality, but if I log in as
for example "Administrator" the name/password is not accepted
on Samba connection! Do you have any idea?  (It is usual problem
in Win95, I know, because on new connections win95 gives edit box
for Password field only, but NT shows Connect As: editbox as well!?)

Thank you in advance,
